Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey

Welcome to the Vintage Automobile Museum of NJ !

The Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey is now featuring a “Blast from the Past” car display! The new display is called “The Corvair Review”. Corvairs will be on display from September 16 though November 29, courtesy of the NJ Society of Corvair Enthusiasts, who have graciously offered to display their cars.

The Chevrolet Corvair was first introduced in 1960 but was discontinued in 1969. So it is rare today to see one of these icons driving down the street.

The Corvair’s design is unique. Engines where trunks should be and trunks where engines should be is just one example. We also have on display a beautiful large passenger van and a bright red cargo van. After seeing these gorgeous cars, you’ll wonder why Chevrolet decided to discontinue them.

If you are visiting the Jersey Shore, remember to include the Vintage Automobile Museum on your itinerary. At the same time, you can visit the New Jersey Museum of Boating, which is right next door to us. Both museums are free admission.

And, remember, we welcome group tours on any day and any time. (Please call me to schedule a tour.)

Want to know what has been going on in the Museum since 2000, the year we incorporated?

Scroll down to see the short Power-Point video from 2010 that describes our activities and anticipation for the day when we would open the doors to a “brick & mortar” Museum building. And below that, see the video of the Grand Opening of the Vintage Automobile Museum of NJ on September 15, 2012.

Travelling Museum

Since we were incorporated as a 501(C)3 in 2000, we actively operated as a Museum-On-Wheels. The video below from 2010 describes our activities and anticipation for the day when we would open the doors to a “brick & mortar” Museum building.

And here is a video of the Grand Opening of the Vintage Automobile Museum of NJ on September 15, 2012. You can see everyone’s excitement as New Jersey’s only public automotive museum celebrates the success of many years of loving work to make it happen. Oh, and we still continue to have all our travelling programs and activities. (move mouse over box below and hit play)

A lthough there are museums and attractions throughout the state that contain antique cars, there is not one true public antique automobile museum in all of New Jersey. All museums are a necessity, for they play a vital role in the nation's educational system. They add a more tangible dimension to what can be learned from sitting in a classroom, or from watching TV. Our goals are to not only bring antique cars to a central viewing place, but to also preserve history, share that history, and take pride in a history that truly encouraged and shaped growth in New Jersey and this country.

P lans for the museum include programs to enrich the lives of students of all grade levels. The automobile is an extraordinarily rich object, embracing science, mathematics, history, foreign languages, aesthetics, and civil and social issues. Students, scouts, community groups, and special audiences will benefit from our programs. Hands on exhibits will be developed for all age groups.

F or the adult population we will have lecture series, such as the history of the automobile, car collecting, racing, and the impact of the automobile in New Jersey, the country, and our society.  We will also sponsor workshops that will provide fundamental knowledge about the parts of a car, how it works, and basic maintenance techniques.

The Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey was granted 501 ©3 status in 2002 as a non profit organization and will be run as an educational and community minded entity. We are not simply planning to build an old car parking lot. Our goal is to put together a total program preserving our automotive heritage and its impact in New Jersey, the country, and on our society.
